It's unlocked & works on T-Mobile (MetroPCS), AT&T, internationally, & prepaid MVNO's: Lyca, AirVoice, Ptel, GoSmartMobile, Straight Talk, Simple Mobile, H2O, and more. check out www.allprepaidplans.com [allprepaidplans.com] see the Discover by Network on the homepage.


FAQ: Does NOT work on Verizon, Sprint, Virgin Mobile

Works with AT&T & T-Mobile HSPA+ (4G) high speed data. TMobile's LTE band 4 (AWS(1700/2100 Mhz) will require unlocking the bootloader and flashing old radio. It's easiest to flash a custom recovery, and use the custom recovery to flash the radio [xda-developers.com].


Unlocking, rooting, relocking and unrooting simplified! (and much more!) - credit to mickey1987 for sharing the linkl

1. Take complete backup including System apps+Data and Shared data
2. Unlock phone (This will wipe out you phone with factory setup. Hence step 1 is recommended)
3. Root phone.
4. Take Nandroid backup (I was saved with this backup when radio flash file cause error 'unfortunately com.android.phone has stopped')
5. Take APN backup (Keep it in case if you need it for future use)
6. Restore backup you took from step 1.
7. Try your luck with radio flash (It worked but it gave me com.android.phone error after phone reboot. I restored backed-up from step 4 and 1)
8. Simple step to enable 4G on t-mobile NW. (You will need to re-do them every time you reboot phone)
a. Change APN setup to fast.t-mobile.com
Setting -> Wireless & Network -> Mobile Netweks - > Access Point Names -> T-Mobile US
b. Change preferred network type to LTE/GSM auto (PRL)
Dial *#*#INFO#*#*
Phone information
select preferred network type to LTE/GSM auto (PRL)


NOTE: uses micro-SIM cards. Cut your own micro-sim
http://www.thechinacellphone.com/...mplate.pdf
keep the cut out if you would like to restore it back to normal sim in future.

I recommend using the case, they are available in different colours (Mylaram)

You're crazy. They're not even in the same league
haha not even same sport I reckon... well maybe that's too harsh
One of the biggest disadvantage for nexus 4 is it doesn't support LTE.

laugh out loud I've had mine since launch day and the glass back is still flawless. Just because you're a clumsy idiot, doesn't mean it's any bad. It's an incredible phone for this price. The L9 is nowhere near the nexus league.
I still have the factory front protector since launch day laugh out loud and it's perfectly intact.

I stand corrected.

"Should Google reduce its price on any Device within 15 days from the date you order it, you must contact Google Play Support within 15 days of the price change to request a refund or credit for the difference between the price you were charged and the reduced price."

You need to use a y-cable as the data pins to provide power are used for slimport.

So no not like native USB otg where it runs off the battery, but as long as you can provide external power, it'll work.

I got 16GB I figured for 50$ more it's worth it less you end up kicking yourself later on. Ended up being 276$ with 2Day shipping and tax which really isn't that bad.
